About Mary Durney

We have owned our property in Sonoma County for 35 years. I have been a publisher of note cards and prints and I have two daughters 28 and 34 who grew up here but now live in Europe/Arizona. My studio is in a barn on the property and I own another house next door (not visible from the cottage) where we have had the same loyal tenants for 35 years. The property is surrounded by many acres of rural open space. The land below the house has fruit trees and a cottage style garden with lots of wonderful flowers which return years after with the seasons. Sometimes fresh tomatoes, herbs or other garden produce is available to guests.

Very safe neighborhood and close to all local amenities.

I have spent 30 years in sales, design and marketing in the business community in California and have many connections and resources available. To see some of my landscape images of our area at 'nautilusimages'.

I had always wanted to be a 'tour guide!, but our vacation rental now allows me the opportunity to share this area I love with visitors. We welcome you to our land, your special place to stay.

Mary Durney purchased this house in 1978

Why Mary Durney chose Sonoma County

Only 6 mins to downtown historical Petaluma with nice shops, antique stores and scores of world class resturants of every cuisine..

What makes this house unique

Lovely New 2 Bedroom Craftsman Bungalow Deck Overlooking view of Sonoma Mountain. Close to the senic beaches of Sonoma County. This is a "cottage sized house" but feels larger because of glass dors & many windows & the decks.

Perfect setting for that weekend getaway to the Coast or Wine Country. (Two bedrooms One with a Queen & one with a double bed. Extra airbeds for children available with plenty of extra blankets & linens for them.
